“How Did the Big Bang Create Matter?” is topic for Friday, Sept. 29

Vince Cianciolo, neutron physics group leader at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will present “How Did the Big Bang Create Matter?” at the UT Science Forum Friday, September 29.

According to theory, matter should not exist. Yet it does. In his lecture, Cianciolo shares that the secret to understanding this mystery may be revealed by high-precision measurements by the Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, September 29 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. Please email Amanda Womac for more details.
